Sweet Mary sent a letter to me
She say to "Hurry home

I've got a stomach full of love
And I'm all alone
All of the day"

That's the least I can do

Sweet Mary in that letter to me
She said "It's up to you
I need you right away, ay, ay"
And now I got to hop a freight
Back to the farm and all

Sweet Mary has a smile on her face
You know she's happy to see me wrap her in an embrace
I only hope that the passing of time
She'll always feel that way
And I won't pack up my things

Coming home to you, yeah, hey
Sweet Mary I'm coming home now
That's the least I can do, hey
